Montage or Ritz Carlton?
My favorite is the Montage.
Montage has fully open air treatment rooms, which are awesome. They're set up in a way that you have complete privacy, but can feel the breeze and (if you were to look) see the ocean. As far as the quality of the massage, we've had great experiences at both. Also, both facilities let you spend the whole day there, if you want. Both have steam rooms, hottubs, and saunas. Montage has a private pool deck with small infinity pool, hottub, and spa drinks/lunch service. Ritz also has a private pool deck for the spa, but you also get access to the Ritz pool area (the resort itself), so it's like a day-pass. We spent a whole day there, having drinks and lunch out at the main pool (pro tip...Molokai Mule served in a pineapple!). It was an expensive, but great, relaxing day.
Both - go for it
Wow - sounds awesome! I think if I book a massage day and a couple of whale trips and a couple of restaurants, my pre-planning is complete!
Any west maui massage budget friendly suggestions (under $175)? Thanks you.
Check Zensations, in Honokowai. Not oceanfront but a solid place for many years.
